-republican kentucky senator rand paul. >> i do support unemployment benefits for the 26 weeks they are paid for. if you extend it beyond that, you do a disservice to these workers. when you allow people to be on unemployment insurance for 99 weeks, you're causing them to become part of this perpetual unemployed group in our economy. >> joining me today, "washington post" columnist jonathan capehart, former white house press secretary and founding partner off-almost said founding father -- founding father and partner of inside agency robert gibbs, congressional reporter for buzz feed and political reporter and white house correspondent at the "huffington post" sam stein. we talked a lot about the pizza versus the pizza box. after the gop autopsy, the republican conviction they didn't actually need to change the product they were selling, they just needed to change the marketing. it's unbelievable me, the whole 47% thing clearly has not made a dent. nowhere do you see that in a more pronounced fashion than republican talking points on unemployment. >> largely, if you ask most members of the gop,
demise. so far the likelihood of a budget deal is anybody's guess as house budget chair paul ryan told "politico," we're talking but it's premature to say anything now. if the parties fail to reach a deal. or more likely if house republicans reject a deal, the government will again shut down on january 15th. and less than a month later on february 7th, the economic bomb that is the debt ceiling is set to go off. i can't believe i have to say both of those things again. with all of this hanging over his head speaker john boehner channeled his newman, what me, worry? approach to congressional deadlines. speaking before the break boehner seems completely nonplussed he provides over the least productive congress since world war ii. >> listen, we have a very divided country and a very divided government. i'm not going to sit here and underestimate the difficulty finding the common ground. there's not as much common ground here as there used to be. >> indeed. why find common ground when one party can spend all of its time railing against the president's health care law. with that the preside
here's senator rand paul over the weekend. this guy would make scrooge very proud. >> you're causing them to become this part of perpetual unemployed group in our economy. while it seems good, it does a disselfto the people you're trying to help. >> uh, no. welcome to the real world, senator, where there are still three job applicants for every one job out there, cutting the lifeline for active job seekers there not magically create, but it will put -- cutting unemployment benefits? that is a five ho ho ho, newt gingrich. first, let me say i believe there are things we could do to dramatically improve the impact. to actually prepare people for getting to work and versus a better job in the future. but took in the crossfire, weapon hawaii's democratic governor, neil abercrombie, and tim pawlenty, in a different life another colleague of mine. we're delighted to have both of you here this evening. governor, economists like larry summers, who was an adviser both to president obama and before that to president clinton have concluded that long-term unemployment compensation act
secret plan, a paul ryan plan that would replace the affordable care act. can you give us any intel on what that secret plan is? >> i think it's so secret that it hasn't been developed yet. i think the republicans have -- since we passed the affordable care act back in 2010, they have talked about just repeal. repeal, repeal. then they said repeal and replace. but then they had nothing to replace it with. so it is really a bottomless pit of ideas that never seem to come to the surface in the republican caucus. and i think it's because they really don't want to have a solution for those who have been uninsured. the 45 million americans who are uninsured. that is not who they seek to represent. and they're not interested in finding a way to provide them with health insurance. but mind you, all of us, all of us end up paying when the 45 million are uninsured. because the costs of our premiums sky rocket when the uncompensated care is paid for by the hospitals and the insurers. so we're all in this boat together. and we've got to find a way to not have it sink. and the affordable care a
the turnout in the last election because people were so angry, so we had rand paul in detroit yesterday making, you know, an overture to african-americans, opening up the rnc's african-american outreach office. but interestingly enough, i think to david's point, i don't think that's necessarily -- that may be about african-americans in saying, hey, democratic policies failed you. come to us. it may also be for white voters in the suh bushburbs. more about what they perceive as their base. not necessarily about average african-americans. >> hey, look at us. we're not as hateful. we're not as exclusionary as the big bad liberal media, lame stream media makes us out to be. look, we're reaching out to african-americans. where do we go to reach out to them? detroit. that's my problem. detroit. you couldn't go some place elsewhere the message would have some credibility? and you would send someone other than rand paul who was just at howard university condescending to black students there. >> exactly. actually, i have a little shot for you from rand paul i want to play. he was talking about his litt
presidential nominee, paul ryan from wisconsin. and, of course, our beloved canadian senator, now residing in texas, ted cruz. no cameras in this event. but we know what they were talking about. >> we're getting more and more takers than makers in america. and we need to have more makers and less takers in america. if we have more takers, then we're denying people of their ability to make the most of their lives. >> if you raise the minimum wage, the inevitable effect will be number one, young people will lose their jobs. or not be able to get their first jobs. unemployment among young people will go up if the minimum wage goes up as president obama says. unemployment among hispanics, among african-americans, among those struggling to get their first job to climb the economic ladder will go up. >> these guys are just making this stuff up. they're making it up. there is no study anywhere that says for sure unemployment of young people is going to go up if we raise the minimum wage. it's never happened before. you know, it's guys like paul ryan and ted cruz. groups like a.l.e.c. and the repu
patty murray and congressman paul ryan, the budget chairs working on the deal are at least determined to keep the government open and they think they can get the plan together for a vote later this week. one of the final sticking points in the deal could be unemployment. friday the unemployment rate dropped to 7%. that's the lowest since november of 2008. federal benefits expire at the end of the year and it's not clear if an extension would be included in any budget deal. >> i don't think we've reached that point where we've said this is it, take it or leave it. what i hear from patty murray, i spoke to her the other night, negotiations are making progress, moving in the right direction. >> i want to bring in our company, carrie budoff brown, ron fornier. good morning. >> good morning. >> carrie, is getting a deal done, if it does happen this week, a major milestone or is this the smallest possible thing they could do just to keep the government up and running? >> well, it's more significant than the deal that they got two months ago to keep the government running. that was a two-mon
would like to privatize it. you and paul ryan. >> that's not what paul ryan says. >> that's not minimize what it is. i say let people keep more taxes and fund a program that isn't working and rife with fraud and -- >> $200 billion in vouchers -- >> what's wrong with re-examining it and -- >> take it out and see what happens. >> any time a republican offers some kind of option, it is demonizing as being greedy or pushing grandma off the cliff. it would be great if both sides analyzed what options were out there ee dwaqually. >> they did. that. they tried that with simpson/bowles. >> i don't know what that is. >> do you remember? >> no. >> could drone dlielivery, be o future. barbara walters, a saint, releases her list of 10 ten most fascinating people in the year. >> she is a saint. >> why do we care? that demate and more coming up on "the five." this is the quicksilver cash back card from capil one. it's not the "limit the cash i earnvery month" card. it's not the "i only earn decent rewards at the gas station" card. it's the no-games, no-signing up, everyday-rewarding, kung-fu-fighting,
government shutdown next month. paul ryan and patty murray are heading up these talks. the two sides are said to be about $100 billion apart with the gap narrowing in these talks very much continuing. >>> your fast food order may not arrive so fast this morning. restaurant workers in 100 major u.s. cities are threatening to walk off the job demanding higher wages and demanding the right to unionize. 53 lawmakers have written letters to mcdonald's, devices. >> developing now secretary of state john kerry is in jerusalem with talks with benefitingin netanyahu. they are discussing the recent nuclear deal struck with iran. kerry then heads to ramallah with a meeting with mahmoud abbas. the secretary is trying to get to those peace talks kick-started between the israelis and the palestinians. we have a live report for you from jerusalem that is in our next half hour. >>> vice president biden trying to ease tensions between japan and incline. he is in beijing. biden telling chinese leader that america will not recognize the zone. both japan and china claim to have sovereignty over the disputed regi
of politics involved in this, because paul ryan is a rising star last year. so john boehner and other republicans don't want to start raining on his proposal before they even come out because they do need to give some room to be a leader. unless you're against paul ryan. there is some power politics in play at this moment as well. >> mike, you mentioned the white house not wanting to spend any political capitol on this. don't they have a reduced pile of capital at 1600-- >> not much left. by a lot of polls, he's in the same place as far as his approval rating was as president bush was in his second term. the only one with lower approval rating is congress. if you're the white house, and you've been burned with this process being associated with it in public so many times. congress is a curious animal. it has it's only buy ways and folk ways, and these deals get worked on behind the scenes. it's a mess. everyone is disgusted by it. if you're the president, and--here's another thing. you talk about a grand bargain. the president has suffered a great deal over the botched healthcare.com.
be at hand. maybe. there is a catch. it is senator pae eor patty mur is working with paul ryan on this. you might remember him from the big deficit reduction in 2010. he was part of that and he killed it. also the big bipartisan gang of six. he was part of that ena he killed it. he was about part of the grand bargain in 2011 which was killed by paul ryan. so yes, patty murray and paul ryan are reportedly close to a deal that would kill the sequester, get us a budget, and all sorts of reasonable things that everybody in washington says they want. paul ryan's history of working on deals like this is he likes to be seen working on them before he breaks free and calls them impure and kills what he helped to negotiate. i'm not getting excited about this yet. initial reports are positive, long term prospects are dim. even the babiest of babe steps are steps. in a year like this one, a congress like this one, the most meager signs of progress must be nurtured. so you can see like right here i can just... you know, check my policy here, add a car, ah speak to customer service, check on a claim...yo
work on a compromise led by senator's -- by senator patty murray of washington state and paul ryan from wisconsin. here is a preview of our discussion with representative adam smith. >> congress has to wake up and understand the budgets are getting smaller. that is just the way it is, so let us make some intelligent decisions on how to do it instead of trying to defend every little piece of the budget . i think the president has tried to take hold of this approach. i hope congress tends to be more cooperative. certainly costs are going to have to be more of a part of it. we have to be sure we have the training and necessary -- joining our conversation is representative adam smith. newsmakers as every sunday at 10 a.m. eastern time. a rebroadcast at 6 p.m. eastern. two other items from the sunday paper i want to bring to your attention before we take a quick , first from "the new york times," a compelling photograph of america at its plainest. what makes people stay back of this is from "the new york times" sunday magazine. and they look from "the washington post" out look session -- out
budget guru paul ryan and the senate budget committee chairman are leading the talks. class i am hopeful paul ryan and patty murray will come to a budget agreement and that they can pass both isles in the senate. -- gave us an update on where they were and i am hopeful they will be able to work this out. there is clearly no agreement. click the clock is ticking. there is still much work to be done. time is running out on a budget agreement. we understand negotiations are we alsong and understand there is no final deal. qwest paul ryan says he does not know if they can reach a deal by friday but does they are working on it. what they are working on is a narrow word he'll, trying to ease sequestration. in case a budget deal is not reached him a lawmakers came up with a short-term bill to fund the government, which runs out of money yet again on january 15th. matt out joined the surveillance team this morning. ultimately put agreement together that is a short-term agreement. to me, we will not get out of the political mess until 2016. we are in a situation where the president is not trusted
's pushed down. there is some secret new plan for paul ryan. anyway, the president's confronted the problems with the law's website. saying it would be vastly improved by december 1st which was yesterday. complaining about errors with registrations. but overall the president's fixer told reporters that it was night and day from where it was on october 1st. well, here's a look at what's been done. traffic problems are tremendously better than they were back in october. the site can now handle roughly 800,000 users every day. that's 800,000. more than two-thirds of the required repairs have been completed. that's a big number when you consider the fact that 600 problems were identified originally. and most importantly the website is far more stable. it's now fully functional more than 90% of the time. so here we have all this news. how's the republican party going to go on this though? they're going to attack the website. the website is beginning to work effectively. what are they going to attack next? >> i think they're going to keep attacking the idea of obama care. they're going to keep say
the caveat that has the sayinsaying that it could fall t as any deal in congress. but paul ryan and patty measure which are very close to striking a deal on the budget that would roll back some of the sequester cuts and have new fees and keep government pending and avoid another government shutdown. >> new fees. riddle me this, when is a fee increase, ginger, not a tax. >> it's not a tax when republicans support it. they're trying to craft increases in fees more revenue into the budget that republicans can get hyped who said no new taxes. some of this is expanding the base more people paying a fee by giving more access. increases and fees that have not been addressed in a long time. we don't know which ones specifically they'll sign off on. >> ginger, where is the trouble likely to come from, the left? the right? >> reporter: it will come from both sides. paul ryan will have to make a hard sale to republicans in his caucus. it's not clear whether or not the majority of republicans would back any deal. most of them oppose any extra spending, and democrats in the senate who think that tax i
people at the table are congressman paul ryan and democratic senator patty murray of washington state. >> we're going to find the common ground between our two budgets that we can both vote on and that's our goal. >> no steps forward means no relief from sequester cuts with more on the way. and senate republican leaders don't son concerned. >> i think it's a bad idea to revisit a law that is actually working and reducing spending for the government. >> not all republicans are at peace with it. congressman howell rogers of kentucky chairs the appropriations committee and says the current cuts and the next round are gruesome. >> a $20 billion cut to the military above and beyond what they already sustained. that would be very, very severe. >> reporter: congressman moran questions the real incentive for getting a deal done. >> we could fix the budget situation in a bipartisan way won hours, but the leadership doesn't want that done. they don't want to make deals. >> during back the sequester and preventing another government shut down would required them working together and that would b
and funded. paul ryan chairman of the house and patty murray, one republican one democrat engaging in talks, don't expect them to come up with a big proposal but a modest proposal could keep the government funded and running past the next deadline we're watching, january 15th. that's the real one. this friday is fairly arbitrary. if they botch that, if they can't come to any agreement the sky doesn't fall. but it's the january 15th deadline they're trying to get ahead of. we are seeing that they are going to try to come up with sequester cuts, the question is how to pay for them. we're watching for something like user fees, perhaps cuts to federal worker workers benefits. issues that the members of the committee are trying to hammer out. stay tuned. >> talk about hammering things out, a budget isn't the only thing that congress is trying to hammer out. what else tops that agenda? >> it is a big agenda. harry reid laid it out for us this afternoon. >> we must address the issue of additional sanctions against iran, we must address the jobs conference report, medicare keeping doctors by adjust

be great. all of their plans, including paul ryan's 2010 plan, was about breaking down the base and moving people over. one of the things frustrating about this debate is we've gone to a place in politics where we've refused to accept the fact of this reform. the individual market is a place where the recent prices are what they are as we discriminate against the sick and the old and women and people who can't read the fine print of insurance. we are fixing that and it's going to be important that we fix it. it doesn't mean no one will have a tough time in the changeover, and we need to help those folks, but we also need to recognize if we're going to make things better, there is a process of difficulty to do that. >> i'm out of time, but this is really where i think the administration wants to argue the plus side that you've already seen on the affordable care act and argue the real peril of the status quo. i have to leave it there. but thank you both for being here. we're going to come back and talk a little about the catholic church. why the church has turned against the president's hea
reports say paul ryan and patty murray are nearing an agreement on a budget deal that would raise spending to about $1 trillion. looking to replace some automatic spending cuts set to start in january. republicans would agree to more federal spending, steps that could avoid another government shutdown next year. workers expected to walk off their jobs and the protests have begun in detroit. dozens of demonstrators have lined up outside a mcdonald's restaurant protesting what one forcalled "slave wages" fast food wages. raising pay to $15 an hour. are also expected to join workers on the strike lines. that a gunman has killed a u.s. citizen in benghazi. the person was working at a school. those are some of the latest headlines on c-span radio. >> c-span. we bring public affairs events from washington directly to you, putting you in the room at congressional hearings, white house events, briefings, and conferences, and offering complete gavel-to-gavel coverage of the u.s. house, all as a public service of private industry. we're c-span, created by the cable tv industry 34 years ago and funde
, but is small dealmaking. negotiators are getting close. patty murray and paul ryan are on the path to a deal. they still have differences here. the bigger question is, can whatever agreement these to come up with pass muster with their collective colleagues? they will be at it this weekend and communicating with their staffs. the deadline is next friday, december 13. the real deadline is january 15. that is when the government runs out of money. ,he key component of the deal is that spending levels will replace the automatic spending cuts. other areas and some new revenue would not involve any tax increases or major entitlement reforms. none of those big-ticket items. even the smaller deal is proving to be a challenge right now. >> it just seems like every thought that we have had on this set says that we have to have entitlement reform. if those issues are not on the table, what is the point of this? >> the only point is to provide some certainty in the short term. there is a case that we made here, a lot of people are skeptical of. if they can reach the smaller deal in one or two years, ma
.s. congressman paul ryan of wisconsin are getting closer to a budget deal. but it won't be anything close to a grand bargain. but murray of the budget committee and ryan the republican chair of the house committee have until december 13th to reach a deal. that's next friday. and politico reports they're inching toward a small scale deal at least. to replace sequester cuts for the next two years. most importantly the deal could potentially reduce the threat of another government shutdown come january 2014. and we'll be right back after this. >>> this the working and will work into the future. my main message today is we're not going back. that seems to be the only alternative that obama care's critics have is let's just go back to the status quo because they haven't presented an alternative. i've always said i will work with anybody to improve this law effectively. you've got good ideas, bring them to me. let's go. but we're not repealing it as long as i'm president. >> that's putting a lot in. that was the president on offense very much so today after weeks of dealing with negative headli
a deal but they didn't sound optimistic about it. paul ryan and patty murray gave themselves until friday 13th to draft a limit on the spending cap under what is called the sequesteral law. they want to spend more than was planned and avoid mandatory crass the board cuts. and we are looking at another government shutdown. and the only other option is to stay in the spending cap. but that has 107 billion neither party really wants and that's the sequester part of all of. this they want to shrink the military cuts and democrats want to restore educational money and medical sesearch. how they would pay for it. and the republicans are not happy about the spending and bill written behind closed doors. >> paul ryan came in and gave us an update and i hope they work it out. there is cleel no agreement. >> no agreement and the senate is still out on the thanks giving recess and will not be back until next week. and then the house goes on vacation for the week. it leaves only five work days in which the house and senate will be in the capitol building together. and the budget is not only th
senator patty murray and representative paul ryan, who have been squirreled away -- everyone has been distracted with other issues but these two lawmakers have been negotiating the budget deal for next year, and in washington, when things are quiet, that usually means something is happening, and in this case it definitely is happening. both paul ryan and senator patty murray have called for a 100% fee increase for airline security fees. so, you can pretty much guarantee you'll see a secure fee increase on your airline ticket next year. >> saying in of the other things that democrats want to do as far as revenues, closing loopholes, which would be a tax hike. watch very closely, vince. thank you. >> sure. >> in the meantime, compromise your dignity but get the skinny on sales. apple has it, a new technology that is like a gps for inside apple stores, only this one follows you long after you have left the store. so me thinks you're downloading a whole lot of big brother to go with those great big sales, and our guru says this is the future, but be awake. what is this all about, jeremy?
they will get a deal. talk that house budget chair paul ryan and senate budget chair, patty murray may be close but close is not an agreement. we'll see if they have a will to force something across the finish line. house speaker john boehner sounded cautiously optimistic. >> i'm hopeful that paul ryan and patty murray will come to a budget agreement that the, that can pass both the house and the senate. paul ryan came in today, gave us an update where they were. i'm hopeful that they will be able to work this out but there's clearly no agreement. >> reporter: to make that december 13th deadline they need to reach a deal by monday to allow time for the whole congressional process to work. that means this could be a critical weekend, jenna. jenna: nice that you can recycle your scripts from previous years, mike. you don't even need to do any work on this mike, right? >> reporter: feels like groundhog day. >> i'm just kidding. what is different this time smashed there is a request from democrats on the budget. is that different? what does that tell us where the deal stands in general? >> reporter
with reporters in the u.s. capitol today. he's hopeful that senator murray and paul ryan can come to an agreement on next year's budget. and he said he's open to a one-month extension of the farm bill. i'm hopeful that paul ryan and patty murray will come to a budget agreement that they can pass both the house and the senate. paul ryan gave us an update on where they were. i'm hopeful they'll be able to work this out. but there's clearly no agreement. on the farm bill, i've not seen any real progress on the farm bill. and we've got to pass a one-month extension of the farm bill. i think we've been prepared to do that. [inaudible] i'll let the chairman answer that question. but i think all of it probably i've extended for a month. listen, i've been that the house is going leave next friday. and you all know me pretty well. i mean what i say, i say what i mean. >>> emergency unemployment benefits are scheduled to expire on new year's eve. coming 1.3 million people without jobs. the house democratic steering committee held a hearing on the issue today. one of the witnesses spoke about the eight mont
paul ryan putting together a package that would carry the budget for the next two years, which is astounding to most of us. my question is, i applaud bipartisanship. if they can work mng out, fantastic. at the same time i'm incredibly skeptical even paul ryan can sell thing to the conference. >> i did a piece talking about chuck hagel, chuck hagel, the defense secretary is getting impressive internally because there's a sense you're looking at potential $100 billion a year sequester cuts in the defense department. that is the one issue in the fight that can motivate them. two-thirds have skin in the game in terms of military installations, significant contractor employees in their district. so i think that ultimately is the end game. i think the biggest thing to happen in this entire debate in the past six months without question is harry reid and the nuclear option. jamal talking about the white house needing to take more direct action, be more muscular. talking about a new thing every day. the only way to do that is control your own executive. that is why obama and reid toget
real leadership and deals are done. paul ryan and patty murray are grown-ups. they don't agree on everything. they're not out finger points or blaming. they're trying to do something constructive. i think the president ought to watch this. if you get -- no, it's not big in that way, if they get something and we can get passed funding the government debt ceiling without the democrats shooting themselves in the foot -- >> that's the best victory. >> i was told the sequester and the budget caps were going to destroy the economy. remember that? >> they closed -- >> and the cbo told us it was going to destroy the economy. where are we now? after a year of the sequester, 11 months the unemployment rate has come down from close to 8% to 7%. now, the economy is performing as sub par. it ought to be growing twice as fast, but it's growing. and i think smaller government gives the private sector openings to grow. let's them breathe. >> the economy didn't collapse in the shutdown. >> all the keynesians predicted gloom and doom and nothing happened. >> and the sequester only amounted to 3
deadline. you know that paul ryan and patty murray have been working on a framework. they're talking about something like a trillion dollars, which is more than paul ryan wanted, less than patty murray wanted, but also talking about new fees to raise revenue instead of tax hikes. from what you're hearing this general framework, could you support it? >> well, it depends. the trillion dollars you're talking about is higher than what the existing law is and i would point out that speaking of existing law, we have one that specifies the level of discretionary spending. specifies that at $967 billion. so from my point of view if we're going to spend more than that, then we ought to find offsetting savings some where else, which i'm very much open to. i know our friends on the other side of the aisle want there to be revenue. we're not going to support tax increases. are there some categories of revenue that are of a different nature? >> such as? >> for instance, federal employees have very generous retirement plans. if we asked them to contribute a little bit more to their retirement plan, that
that in today's budget agreement. >> i am hopeful paul ryan and patty murray will come to a that can passnt both the house and senate. paul ryan came in today and gave us an update of where they were. i am hopeful they will be able to work this out but there is clearly no agreement. on the farm bill, i have not seen any real progress. we have to pass a one- month extension of the farm bill, i think we will be prepared to do that. think all of it would be extended for a month. i have made it clear that the house is going to leave next friday. you all know me pretty well. i mean what i say and i say what i mean. >> numbers level back in monday at noon eastern for general speeches. 2 p.m. eastern for legislative work. watch the house line is always here on c-span. on c-span, "washington journal" looks at the mission and role of the national institutes of health. startek live at seven: 30 eastern with director francis collins on their medical research priorities, future projects, and the impact of sequestration. at 8:00, allergy and infectious diseases director anthony foutch green,lowed by eric dir
